Linebackers Draft 2006

If no other significant free agent LBs are signed it will be exciting to anticipate a high impact/starting backer available at #34. This is one of the best LB classes in recent history with 2 to 5 first rounders, and about 10 in the 1st and 2nd combined. Hawk is looking like a top 5-7 pick and could be possible if Brees signs and trading down. Greenway looks like a sure mid first rounder that probably will not fall the saints way. the class is so deep though you would think one of Abdul Hodge, DeMeco Ryans, Bobby Carpenter, or D'Qwell Jackson would be there to be had at the 2nd rd selection. I think anyone of those 4 would be an immediate upgrade over the current starters.

that would go a long way towards soothing my bitterness of taking bullocks over nfl defensive rookie of the year LB odell thurman and seattle leading tackler LB lofa tatupu who also had 4 sacks and 3 interceptions.

RE: Linebackers Draft 2006

Yeah this is what I've been saying LKelley, however, before all of the Drew Brees talk. But anyways, it looks like we're not going to get him so I'd like to see us end up taking Leinart, then one of those LBs at 34, and then straight defense the rest of the time.

RE: Linebackers Draft 2006

look these guys over if you haven't, some of these would normally be gone 10 or more picks higher. just such depth this year one or two will be available.
my official GM move today-
swap firsts with the jets for their #2 and #3 or #2 this year and #2 next year.

equals-
D'Brick, bookend with Jammal for a decade
one of those guys, say Jackson, Fujita, him, and the best of the leftovers start
Wroten with our second rounder, middle plugged
Missing 3rd round pick replaced, best available
